Beach-goer airlifted to hospital with head and neck injuries after plunging 30ft off cliff onto ROCKS at lockdown party

A BEACH-goer was airlifted to hospital with head and neck injuries after plunging 30ft off a cliff at a lockdown party.

The man, 23, had been enjoying himself with friends when he fell onto rocks at White Beach in Anglesey.

He suffered the fall at around 1.15am today with emergency services called out to the scene.

Police, paramedics, a coastguard team and the RNLI all weather lifeboat helped to rescue the man as water from the incoming tide approached.

He was taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd hospital in Bangor.

A coastguard spokesman said that the group were dealt with by police for "breaking the Covid-19 restrictions in Wales".

The cliff plunge comes as thousands of Brits flocked to the country’s coastlines while temperatures sizzled to 31C.

PACKED BEACHES

Crowds crammed into jam-packed beaches at Bournemouth, Brighton and Southend yesterday to soak up the sun and plenty more are expected to follow suit today.

But three days of thunderstorms are predicted this weekend – bringing a wet end to Britain’s heatwave.

While the beaches are packed, medics are warning against the dangers of breaking social distancing.

Good Morning Britain’s Dr Hilary Jones warned Brits that coronavirus was “still out there” despite lockdown conditions being eased.

He told viewers today: “I know the temptation is to go to the beach, where childnre can play in the water and see the boats, lovely idea, but there are plenty of open spaces that may not be quite as beautiful but safer.

“We’re not really out of the first wave, we’re still seeing 154 deaths overnight, we’re still seeing cases admitted to hospital.

"I don’t know what we have to say to people to say ‘stay safe’ it’s still out there and it’s too early to go back to normal.”
